We are thinking about building a membership site with the upcoming functionality.
We would like to ideally build a new site with a new domain, visually corresponding to our main website. Would there be a way to share CMS content between those two sites? There is a lot of content that we would use on both sites. Entering content twice or exporting/importing CSV lists is not really an option. We would like to find an automated, hands off solution to this.
As those sites would also share the same CI, is there a way of sharing CSS between two sites?
At this time Collections and collection data can only be accessed by the webflow project that it was created in. You cannot access it from another Webflow project. But this would be a great suggestion for our community wishlist.
Absolutely. You could use Zapier to create a one-way sync between two sites/collections. I say one-way sync because creating a bi-directional sync through automation can get complicated. Better to use one site/cms as the source of truth and push new or updated items to the other one.
Another option would be to use Airtable as the source of truth and push the updates from there to the two sites using tools like Whalesync, Power Importer, or Nobull. Your clients or editors will just need to be trained/proficient in Airtable instead of Webflow, but that workflow opens up a lot of possibilities.
Zapier can get expensive, the error handling is not great, and there’s not a built-in mechanism for handling API rate limits when doing bulk actions. The other options I mentioned handle errors and rate limits without introducing another tool to maintain or pay for.
Thank you! I am starting to check into these apps.
Nobull ist just starting out. Hard to say. I LOVE start ups and ambition (just like Webflow many years ago). We really need to build with tools that will last on the market. That question is impossible to answer, I know. Nobull is currrently ONLY for the Airtable-Webflow connection.
Whalesync seems attractive, as they are advertising the tie into other tools we use, such as Salesforce. Does anyone have hands on experience with Whalesync? Strangely enough they have no pricing info on their website anywhere…
